I was recently approached by Dr. Racanelli, a surgeon in NYC. He inquired whether I would be interested in tattooing the areola and nipple areas of his patients that have gone through breast reconstruction after mastectomies. During some surgeries, areolae and nipples are removed. Although reconstructions can create a “breast” using the surrounding tissue and implants, they cannot recreate the color of the areolae and nipple.
I told Dr. Raccanelli that I would love to help and he could give out my information to any patient who was interested. I had my first corrective/reconstruction tattoo procedure yesterday. If any one is interested, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Below are before and after pictures.
While this is Joy’s first areola and nipple reconstructive tattoo, I am positive it will not be her last!
